Jawa Sixth Scale Figure Set

A curious species, bands of greedy merchant Jawas scour the deserts of Tatooine for discarded droids and scrap machinery to repair, trade, and resell. Never seen traveling alone, the Sideshow Collectibles Jawa Sixth Scale Set includes two fully articulated individuals, each packed with personality and the ability to pose in an endless variety of positions for display. Mysteriously concealed in their traditional brown robes and bandoliers, bright LED-illuminated yellow eyes peer out from beneath the dark folds of their peaked hoods. Ready to peddle their hastily refurbished finds, the Jawas are equipped with an impressive cache of weapons and accessories, including a space thermos, welder, droid caller, magnetic restraining bolt, a blaster pistol which fits neatly in a belt holster, and a droid-stunning Ion Blaster for difficult acquisitions. Scum, villainy, and moisture farmers alike will be hard-pressed to find a better selection anywhere else!

Manufacturer: Sun-Star Stationary (Bit of a redundant name don’t you think?)

Out of all the things they ever made resemble the sealing and star wands from Cardcaptor Sakura, these are probably the best. Their quality is very nice, the detailing is perfect (the star wand even has gems on both sides). The only problem is they feel a little limp and flimsy, but that’ll happen when you put a weight at the end of these little pointers. Just don’t ever fully extend it and it’ll feel fine. It’s full length is almost a meter.

Recommendation: They’re cute, but pricey. Usually between 50 and 60 for the set. The Sakura wand pointers are a cute little gimmick item and you can bet that if I ever have a panel at a convention (probably about how it’s ok for guys to love Shoujo) I will be using these on a power point.

4/5 (I’m gonna start using ratings)

Banpresto, Atsumete figures, Sakura, Keroberos, and Yue.

At long last they made merch of Kero and Yue as their true forms! As figures go they’re basic but cute. Fairly stable in their base and a grey bit of decoration to get with any Sakura figure.

Recommendation: The Atsumete line of Sakura figures are all cute. I’m not a fan of some of the colors they use but they are excellent figures overall.
